was effectively a referendum on obamacare. and yet this president and nancy pelosi and harry reid rammed it through. >> the question -- if you were elected, do you want these benefits that hundreds of thousands of texans now have -- to do what been taken away? >> that is not exactly right. i support as a dividend health care reform. >> the lot of the land is in the books. do you want to have it taken away? >> you cannot talk about half without the other half. the other half -- i think health care reform should follow if you principals. number one, it should expand competition in the marketplace. number two, it should empower patients and disempower government bureaucrats. let me give you three specific reforms -- one, allow people to purchase health insurance across state lines. that would create a true 50- state national marketplace for health insurance. for example, talking about children under 26 being on the apparent policy. if we get a true national marketplace for of insurance, those parents who wanted to purchase that coverage to purchase set. we would not need the government mand
pelosi and harry reid rammed it through. >> the question -- if you were elected, do you want these benefits that hundreds of thousands of texans now have -- do you want them taken away? >> that is not exactly right. i support as a dividend health -- a significant health care reform. >> the lot of the land is in the books. do you want to have it taken away? >> you cannot talk about half without the other half. the other half -- i think health care reform should follow if you principals. number one, it should expand competition in the marketplace. number two, it should empower patients and disempower government bureaucrats. let me give you three specific reforms -- number one, allow people to purchase health insurance across state lines. that would create a true 50- state national marketplace for health insurance. for example, talking about children under 26 being on the apparent policy. -- on their parent's policies. if we get a true national marketplace for of insurance, those parents who wanted to purchase that coverage to purchase set. we would not need the government manda
be an interesting question for romney. does he think he has to sit down with harry reid? or to get to sit with mark warner another senate. and i think the same for president obama. i think republicans have a say are underestimating how strong obama would be if he is reelected. and i don't believe boehner can hold up is the 15th of march. i don't think he can hold all the republicans. they are stronger than it used to be. a figure of more leverage present because of campaign finance issues and other things, but having said that, obama going to the senate and there are some equivalents in the house. even if the democrats don't control all of congress, you would have leverage to go around leadership. in the case of boehner, suspect he would mind. he will feel he is obliged to cut a deal with a bomb and 2013 if romney has lost. but i think people say bipartisanship come up with various leadership negotiation. the other is picking off the members against the wishes of leadership. >> the premise of both of those is there has to be personal relationships. the ambassador pointed out well that governor romn
on this important topic, you pushed through something that you and nancy pelosi and harry reid thought it was the best answer and drove it through. what we did in the legislature 87% democrat. we were together. >> jennifer: all right. of course, if he brings up your mom, i have to reason with you is there anything in his record that would suggest he's capable of reaching across the aisle to get something done in this congress? >> not with the things he says about my mom but more important massachusetts legislator had met the night that romney was sworn in and said we're going to block all things, he wouldn't have gotten it down. romney and obama are both dealing with divided communities but the fact of the matter is more and more people are starting to say we need one party to get something done in washington. his remarks prove it. lee work with a democratic congress. >> jennifer: taking that pledge, you know. signing a pledge saying he won't compromise. that's christine pelosi. thank you, my dear for coming inside "th
and to the republicans, and then you pull back because nancy pelosi and harry reid say don't do it, and now you're attacking republicans for proposing exactly what you proposed to them, and bob woodward has in a document! >> well, i have a healthy suspicion the moderator's probably read bob's book. and he's a great moderator. that's why i think this debate will be fascinating because i think there are some really good questions that you've just raised that will be raised tonight. >> and by the way, you can also ask mitt romney, mike barnicle, why is it that you're not proposing any reform for medicare and social security? >> you know, this discussion is actually kind of fascinating when you listen to it because it gets to, i think, one of the larger points about this election. if you put your ear to the ground, not in washington, not to politicians or other journalists, if you put your ear to the ground, you get the sense that this election really is about the american people asking one question of both candidates, where are you going to take us, and how much is it going to cost? and that's wha
this so you -- you and i both have worked for senator harry reid. you were his communications director in the united states senate, and i did some work for the state party out in nevada. one of the races i'm starting to pay attention to again is our friend running for congress in las vegas. and i heard there is a lot of super pac money coming into that race. is nevada going to be a place where we think we'll hold on and pick up some steam? >> i think so. i think that shelley berkeley -- steve [ inaudible ] i have so much respect for, and i think that he is going to be the next congressman for that district. i also believe that shelley berkeley can win in nevada as well. i also believe that president obama is going to win that state, but i think one of the reasons why we're going to have to [ inaudible ] in nevada and jamal you saw it firsthand, the infrastructure that the senate majority leader harry reid has built up in that state since 2006 on. i mean part of that infrastructure that helped him win and retain his seat in 2010 and the republicans have nothing l
. if god forbid barack obama is reelected and harry reid remains majority leader, i will fight every day to defend texas and free-market principles. i think there's a very real possibility that the obama administration will go directly after fracking, which is opening enormous oil and gas resources. >> one minute left, and we want mr. sadler to jump in. >> mr. sadler, you will join a most republican delegation from texas. how can you be effective or most of the members disagree with your policies? >> i do not in most of them -- i do not think most of them would disagree with my policies. i've the history of bipartisanship. it is a record of honor and distinction. i was named 10 best. i was named by your newspaper one of six best legislators. every single law was passed in a bipartisan manner, with a republican governor, republican senate, democratic house. i have always worked together in a bipartisan manner. that is the value of my record. when you are looking at these two candidates, this is a person who has never been elected to anything. mr. cruz. i have a record you can look at. bi
